Patriot Plaza Anniversary Celebration

Join us in Celebrating Patriot Plaza’s 10th Anniversary on Saturday, March 2, 2024!

Please join The Patterson Foundation in celebrating Patriot Plaza’s 10th Anniversary on March 2, 2024. The prelude begins at 10:30 a.m., and the celebration is from 10:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. at the Sarasota National Cemetery.

Patriot Plaza was conceived, designed, and constructed by The Patterson Foundation as a first-of-its-kind gift to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and its host site at the Sarasota National Cemetery. The plaza is a gift not only to Sarasota but also to our great nation.

The plaza continues to shine and welcome visitors near and far to its soaring structure with its symbolic artwork and gripping documentary photography. The artwork invites visitors to observe, through various mediums of commissioned art—bronze, mosaic, and documentary photography—our nation’s struggles and victories dating from the 1860s American Civil War through Desert Storm. The plaza’s amphitheater provides shade and a respectful, peaceful space to engage with the commissioned artwork and think quietly about the service and sacrifice of protecting our nation’s freedom.

This celebration is a FREE community event! Kindly RSVP here:
